What people are saying about LUPOP

Gerd Ahlström, Professor, Health promoting complex interventions

For the past few years, we have been working on a large register based study regarding ageing with intellectual disability. Thanks to the possibility the Swedish registers provide to link national data, we have been able to investigate outcomes of which several were not studied previously, and in a very large population. I believe that register data is a valuable source in scientific research, and I am pleased that there now is an infrastructure for this at Lund University, so that more researches will be allowed to discover the potentials of already collected data.

Susanne Iwarsson, professor i gerontologi och äldrevård, Institutionen för hälsovetenskaper & Centre for Ageing and Supportive Environments (CASE)

Readily access to expertise at LU on how to design population-based studies using registers and cohorts is essential for our research on the complex interplay between home, health and disability along the process of ageing.

Björn Hofvander

Björn Hofvander, senior lecturer, Dept Clinical Sciences, Lund, Lund University

Our group tries to identify markers that affect individual liability to persistent violent behavior and find interventions to prevent it. The LUPOP-infrastructure and their methodological expertise is an important collaborator for us when planning and conducting large-scale population studies on time trends in psychiatric disorders and crime rates.
